From Wikipedia

Connecticut tax year starts from July 01 the year before to June 30 the current year. So the tax year 2022 will start from July 01 2021 to June 30 2022.
Calculating your Connecticut state income tax is similar to the steps we listed on our Federal paycheck calculator:

  1. figure out your filing status
  2. work out your adjusted gross income [Net income – Adjustments = Adjusted gross income]
  3. calculate your taxable income [Adjusted gross income – Exemptions = Taxable income]
  4. understand your income tax liability [Taxable income × Income tax rate = Income tax liability]
  5. calculate your payroll tax liability [Net income × Payroll tax rate = Payroll tax liability]
  6. minus any tax liability, deductions, withholdings [Net income – (Income tax liability + Payroll tax liability + Pre-tax deductions + Post-tax deductions + Withholdings) = Your paycheck]
